"BREAKFAST NOOK"

It's no secret...
I'm sort of obsessed with my 'lil Nespresso maker.
Recently I've made the corner of my kitchen where I keep/ display my beloved appliance into a pretty "breakfast nook".
My place isn't nearly spacious enough for a legit nook, so a space on my counter wil have to do!
I love waking up to pretty pastels, milk and depression glass, and delicate china.  
I'm not going to lie...It's a rare occasion to find cookies in my place, only because I can't be trusted ;) But, I made some adorable homemade sugar cookies over the weekend with my mom and took some home because I knew they'd look perfect in my nook...and can allow myself to be bad...every once in a while!

  1. The cookies look so good! The color of the frosting is super pretty. I'd love to find a nail polish in that shade. :) Love your posts!

    Lots of love from Seattle <3

  3. Hi Alex,

    Would you share with us how you clean and maintain your apartment? I love how you display the many knic knacs in your home, but for me, I can't imagine myself wiping and dusting all of the small little things everyday.

    Please share with us your secret in keeping your home tidy and neat :)
